North Yorkshire Buy Local
As part of our efforts to support local businesses and communities during the Covid 19 outbreak, North Yorkshire County Council has set up a website called Buy Local www.northyorks.gov.uk/buy-local
It’s a platform to provide free advertising for businesses to connect them with customers, and vice versa. Our aim is to make it a useful resource for now and beyond the Covid 19 outbreak. There are over 500 businesses registered so far, from butchers and bakers, to electricians and solicitors!
Please can you can help us spread the word about Buy Local in your community?
We’d really appreciate it if you could:
· Print and display the attached poster prominently somewhere appropriate
· Share the poster on social media, and share our Buy Local posts – follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin @northyorkscc
· Spread the word in any other ways you can - via parish communications, community newsletters, your website or any other methods available to you.

The Parish Council is continually co-ordinating a community response to Covid-19. There is information throughout the pages of the website about the support available through the Parish Council, village hall, local business and volunteers for our elderly and vulnerable people as well as anyone affected by the virus. Please use the Contact Us form to request support, volunteer or make suggestions.
There is further helpful information in relevant sections throughout the website, in particular:
The PC has long had a Community Emergency Plan which has been recently updated to cope with these difficult times. It is also held by the County Council and Emergency Services. Our mutual planning and activity will help our community to stay safe and look after each other in these challenging times.
It is intended that volunteers will assist vulnerable residents to take care and stay safe. If you are able to volunteer, or if you need support, please use the Contact Us form on the website.
North Yorkshire Police have become aware of individuals exploiting the good community networks being created following the current coronavirus situation.
They have had reports of suspicious persons cold calling the elderly and vulnerable and offering to get shopping for them asking them to hand over cash.
Should anyone get such a call
please do not engage and politely close the door.
Laura Wright is our co-ordinator for local volunteers who are able to assist those needing support.
She will be implementing safe guarding measures.
Information will be distributed via the monthly newsletter (but this will not be delivered by volunteers but left for collection at The Willows) and more regularly by InfoNet KFF - it is important to sign up if you have not already done so - use the 'Subscribe to InfoNet KFF' box to the left of your screen. If you have a neighbour who is not able to access InfoNet KFF, please help to keep them informed in a safe manner. Regular updates will also be posted here.

St Andrew's Church, Great Fencote
has recently been formally closed for public worship. It is a charming stone building, built in the late 1840's. It is not Listed and not located within a Conservation Area. St Andrew's Church stands at the north west corner of the village at the junction between Fleetham Lane and Todd Lane. There is mains electricity and water to the property, though no WC, therefore, it is assumed, no connection to mains sewage. Heating is provided by electric heaters and there is no gas connection to the property. Parking is available on the public highway but there is currently no off street or allocated parking spaces available for the church. The Diocese of Leeds and the Church Commissions are seeking expressions of interest for suitable alternative uses. They would be particularly interested to receive proposal for alternative, viable community uses which are backed up with a sound business plan. There is no guide price and all genuine expressions of interest are welcome.
